Usin more switch ports to gain speen Hi, I bought a 16 port 3com 100/10mbps wich is the smallest one I could find in the dominican republic, I wanted the 8 port model wich nobody sells here. It has a dip swith so you make 4 port trunks. The manual explains that if you do a trunk (4 ports working together) and connect that 4 ports with crossed cables to another switch with 4 trunked ports, you will achive a 400mbps link / 800mbsp full duplex. I searched the net and couldn't find an answer. Is it possible to fit a computer with 4 nic's and connect it to 4 ports in the switch and utilice this 400mbps? That would be great. It's a bit less than half a gigabit ethernet network, but it's also a lot cheaper! I'll continue searching the net and if I find something I'll post it here. If you have any idea, post it here if you want.
